Count down for P.U.P. Projects : aka Poor Unfinished Projects

Where has the past year gone? Time is quickly approaching for the reveal of our P.U.P. projects at the July 6 meeting. You still have 6+ weeks to complete your project and hopefully you haven't waited to the last minute. If you have, then get busy because for those that have finished will be entered into a prize drawing. Please bring your P.U.P. to the meeting in whatever stage it is in on the July 6 meeting for all to enjoy. Get stitchin!!!!

If you want to participate in the P.U.P. project for next year, then start digging in your sewing room and on July 6 bring in 3 options of unfinished projects and the fun begins when the members vote on which project you will be working on for the next year.

It's Time to Renew Your Membership!!!

A friendly reminder that the time has come for everyone to renew their AQG and Nimble Thimble membership. The cost is $25 for AQG and $20 for Nimble Thimbles and this will give you a full year's membership. Last membership drive we had the choice of renewing for 6 months or 18 months, because the fiscal year of AQG was changed to July-July, but now all memberships are due to expire. Georgette will be at next Tuesday's meeting on 5/18 to collect. If not done at that time remember there is a late fee if postmarked after June 1,2010.
Membership forms will be at the welcome desk.

We are looking forward to another wonderful year at N.T. and it's the members that make it so much fun!
